​Getting There

By Bike

Save the gas and add some miles. Bike to the start! Marymoor Park is easily accessible by bike via the Marymoor Connector Trail, which connects both the East Lake Sammamish Trail and the Sammamish River Trail to the start line area.

By Car

From Seattle, take I-90E to I-405. Go north to SR 520E toward Redmond. Take the exit to King County's Marymoor Park (W. Lake Sammamish Parkway).

At the light at the bottom of the exit take a right, then at the next light take a left into the park. Follow the road through the park and then follow the Flying Wheels parking signs near the east end of the park. Registration is in the parking lot in front of the baseball fields at the east end of the park - please, no rider parking in this lot.  Follow the signs to the Flying Wheels parking area where riders park for free.

By Transit

NE 76th St and 177th NE bus stop is located one mile from the start line. Metro Transit Routes 268 & 269 and Sound Transit Route 545 service this stop.
